Manziel Loses Nike Endorsement

According to Darren Rovell of ESPN, Johnny Manziel lost his Nike endorsement deal shortly after the 2015 NFL season, and now word is out.


From ESPN:

Nike spokesman Brian Strong told ESPN that Manziel, who was signed by the shoe and apparel giant in March 2014 to a multiyear deal, is no longer an endorser of the brand.

Sources said Nike terminated the deal some time after the NFL season ended.

The former Cleveland Browns quarterback had already been dumped by his original contract agent, Erik Burkhardt, and his marketing agent, Maverick Carter. His second contract agent, Drew Rosenhaus, left him on Tuesday, a source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. Now Manziel has lost his biggest marketing deal.

The train is off the rails and his people are tucking and rolling out of it as it speeds toward its fiery grave. Man, this sucks. Manziel articles used to be fun to write. We celebrated his drinking, partying, carefree attitude, and his hot TCU girlfriend. Now I hate it and hope he doesn’t read them (ily, Johnny).

I’m not sure what’s left to say at this point that hasn’t already been said. Nike dumps Johnny after last season for his excessive partying and drinking, alleged domestic abuse, missing mandatory team functions, etc., but for some reason keeps it under wraps until he shows up to Coachella looking like the guy you buy shitty coke from?


I don’t even want to read the next chapter.
